On February 27, Wolf Wolfensberger, a dear friend and mentor to many, passed away. Dr. Wolfensberger spent much of his professional energy evaluating services to people with developmental disabilities and their families. He is the originator of the Citizen Advocacy concept, author of Social Role Valorization theory and a primary figure in the Normalization reform movement in the U.S. and abroad.
Since 1973, Dr. Wolfensberger had been a professor in the School of Education at Syracuse University. His enormous contributions to the disability community will be felt for generations to come. Calling hours will be held Friday, March 4, 2011, at 10 a.m. ET at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 259 E. Onondaga Street, Syracuse, NY 13202.
The ADD is looking for input from people with developmental disabilities, parents and family members, advocates, self advocates and professionals that will assist them in setting priorities over the next several years.
ADD has been asking people to specifically describe their vision of the future for individuals with developmental disabilities. ADD is accepting everything from short, paragraphs and position statements to multi-page research papers that individuals upload. Any length. Please
refer to www.envision2010.net/others.php for examples.
When you look at the comments shared so far, you will find a wide range of comments, the vast majority of which are aligned with the DD Act. However, there are some comments that seem to be in conflict with the values and principles of the DD Act.
It is always important to have a well rounded picture when gathering input, so it is important to get the word out about this opportunity to give written testimony to the ADD
